KITCHENER, Ontario, Nov. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- James E. Wagner Cultivation Corporation (“JWC” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE: JWCA; OTCQX: JWCAF), is pleased to announce that on November 1, 2019, it entered into a supply and manufacturing agreement (the “Agreement”) with CannaCure Corporation (“CannaCure”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp., for the formulation and filling of vape cartridges for Canadian recreational and medical cannabis markets. The Agreement advances JWC’s commitment to become a leader in the production of premium, single origin cannabis extract products in Canada.
Under the Agreement, JWC will provide CannaCure with supporting materials and a minimum of 100kg per month of aeroponically-grown cannabis biomass. CannaCure shall process the delivered biomass into products using their ‘direct to vape’ process, which maintains the natural properties of the cannabis strain, and assures no harmful additives are blended into the oil to be vaped. All formulation, preparation and packaging procedures will be carried out in compliance with applicable regulations. The Agreement with CannaCure has an initial term of twelve months commencing on the effective date of October 31st, 2019.
In preparation of entering into the market to supply vape cartridges containing its quality products, JWC has sourced and is using a manufacturer of quality vape cartridges certified to be free of any heavy metal content. The products introduced by JWC will be of premium quality.
“In a new industry like ours it can be difficult to find experienced operators with a depth of knowledge in their chosen area, which is why JWC is happy to have found in Heritage a skill with extraction and formulation to match our own expertise in cultivation,” said Nathan Woodworth, CEO of James E. Wagner Cultivation. “We are confident that the future success of the cannabis industry will be defined by the collaboration of uniquely situated companies such as Heritage and JWC, who are able to combine unique expertise to produce exceptional results.”
“We are pleased to be working with an industry-leading cultivator that has a proven track record of producing some of the highest quality cannabis on the market,” states Heritage Cannabis CEO Clint Sharples. “We are confident JWC’s unique strains will translate well into premium vape products in the marketplace.”
Pursuant to the Agreement, commercial activities have commenced between both parties. Upon receipt of the initial shipment, CannaCure will perform its obligations under the Agreement through CannaCure’s modern extraction facility in Fort Erie, Ontario.
JWC remains on track to introduce its derivative line of cannabis extract products in the first calendar quarter of 2020.
